Snow, –9°C at night, –2°C dur­ing the day … the locals are in shock But it’s nice to walk the dogs, they love the snow.

I can’t paint any­way, the wood­stove is unable to heat my stu­dio enough. It’s max­i­mum 10°C in my stu­dio. Long walks with the dogs, read­ing a book (Sebalds “The Rings of Sat­urn”) in front of the fire and sort­ing my pic­ture library.
